Guesthouse in the Karoo

Dennehof Karoo Guesthouse

A Genuine Karoo Experience, the set up remains unchanged

IMG_2041An 1835 Cape Dutch Farmhouse and outbuildings at the edge of the town, infused with great personality.

On a somnolet stone stoep dozed a collection of chairs, tables and a reclaimed pew.

Table settings sparkled in the sunlight beyond which dessert hills appeared through the feathery pepper trees…then there is the Karoo hospitality. Truly memorable.

Nights will pass star-gazing and sounds indentifying, whilst days can be spent on mountain bike riding, browsing or hiking…

Swimming in the old big round reservoir is a must…I’d recommend you stayed at least 2 nights



Almond, Ricotta and Polenta Cake

From The River Cafe Classic Italian Cookbook by Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers
For 10-12; makes 1 x 26 cm round cake

225g unsalted butter, softened, plus a little for the tin
250g blanched almonds (I successfully substituted almond meal)
100g fine polenta (maize flour)
finely grated zest of 6 lemons
250g caster sugar
6 large free-range organic eggs, separated
300g fresh ricotta cheese
juice of 3 lemons
icing sugar, for dusting

PREHEAT the oven to 150 C.  Butter a 26cm round cake tin and line it with greaseproof paper.
COARSELY chop the almonds in a food processor.  Combine with the polenta flour and lemon zest.
BEAT the butter and sugar together using an electric mixer until pale and light.  Add the egg yolks one by one, then add the almond mixture and fold together.
PUT the ricotta into a bowl and beat lightly with a fork.  Add the lemon juice.
IN ANOTHER bowl, whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Fold the egg whites into the almond mixture and finally stir in the ricotta.
SPOON the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in the oven for 40 – 50 minutes, until set.  Test by inserting a skewer, which should come out clean.  Leave in the tin to cool for 10 minutes before turning out.
DUST liberally with sifted icing sugar before serving.

Daily Tea in Cape Town

Nigiro Tea

Nigiro opened in March 2009 and has brought real loose tea to South Africa. They started off with 120 different teas, and today they offer around 200 teas, and there’s still more to come.

The traditional Chinese way of drinking tea, just like the old folks did, the High Mountain Tea Ceremony on a specially sculptured stone table. The idea: slowing down while forgetting about the outside life and simply enjoying the art of tea.

An absolute ‘don’t’ for the Nigiro-tea-guys is adding milk and sugar to the tea.

There are only 50 acres of rooibos tea in South Africa. The top rooibos tea is exported overseas, but here you can try more than 10 different rooibos teas.

Nigiro Tea Merchants
28 Hudson Street | De Waterkant | Cape Town | +27 (0)21 421 1000

Opening hours:
Monday – Friday 08:30am – 5pm; Saturday & Sunday 09:00am – 2pm

Prices: tea prices ranging from R25 – R305 per 100g; High Mountain Tea Ceremony from R75pp – R175pp with additional options; other tea tastings from R60 – R145

Paint your own jars

Today I am going to share with you one of the simplest and prettiest DIY projects in the history of history. Painted mason jars are one of my favorite, go-to tricks in my craft repertoire and for good reason. You can buy a case pretty inexpensively, collect them used from garage sales or just save pickle jars and condiment jars as you use them up at home. Then, with a coat of paint you have a sweet and pretty vase, pencil cup, planter, utensil holder, you name it! Today I’m sharing how I personally prefer to paint jars for a flawless finish every time and a few ways you can put them to work for you.

Supplies for this one are as basic as it gets! A collection of clean jars and an assortment of your favorite spray paint colors. I like playing around with a mix of glossy, flat and metallic finishes, but choose whatever suits you the best. I’m crazy about a flat paint on a jar with texture or lettering, I just love how it looks.


To paint the jars, flip them upside down on a piece of cardboard. This will keep the lip of the jar from getting all gunked up while you’re painting. Then just hit each jar with a light even coat of paint. I preach this all the time, but with spray paint you’ll find that several (in this case five or six) lights coats are absolutely always preferable over one or two thick coats. This approach will help avoid drips or overly thick paint that won’t dry properly and ultimately ends up smudging later on down the line.


Allow the jars to dry between each coat and just keep layering on the paint until you have a smooth, even finish. As long as you take patience and work in light, even coats with long strokes about 10″ or so away from the jar, you can’t go wrong. In the end, you’ll have a ton of gorgeous jars that can be used all over the place for just about anything you can imagine. Personally, I hoard and paint jars on a regular basis. Painting the outside of the jars is, in my opinion, the best option because it provides the nicest finish on the glass and it also allows you to use the jars as a vase or a planter without worrying about the paint chipping away on the inside.


A big, mint colored pickle jar full of gorgeous, rose-colored tulips? Yes, please! I will also tell you that brightly painted mason jars make the ideal vessels for tiny potted cacti. I have a few of those scattered around the house right now and they are about as adorable as they come. Definitely start collecting jars. Definitely paint them all the colors your little heart desires. Painted Console jars are my favorite!
